Kreativ Blogger Award

December is kicking my behind!

Last weekend, I stumbled upon the Tradeaholics Trade & Stay event on the Etsy forum.

I had such a blast following the thread all weekend, making new Etsian friends, and trading with great Etsy sellers. I've also had the pleasure to visit the post office quite a few times this week because of all the trading fun. I've even started to receive some awesome wares in the mail (will blog about all that in the next post :) It's like Christmas alllllll month for me.
So yesterday morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I been passed the Kreativ Blogger award from a very talented Etsian, Ume Origami. Thanks so much for thinking of me. I am so honored!

The award came with some requirements in order to receive it:
  • Copy the Kreativ Blogger picture and post it on your page
  • Thank the person who gave it to you and link back to their blog
  • Write seven things about you that we don’t know
  • Choose seven other bloggers that you would like to give the award to
  • Link to the bloggers that you choose
  • Let the winners know that they have the lovely award.
So seven things about me that you may (or may not) know:
1. I'm a craft & art junkie. I love it all - scrapbooking, jewelry, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, etc. I want to learn how to crochet next !!!
2. I've been married for 1.5 years to my best friend of 7 years (who was also my first and only boyfriend)
3. My pet family is large: 1 dog, 1 hamster, 1 super goldfish from the OC Fair (still going strong after 5 months!), 3 geckos, and a hognose snake. My husband and I joke we should charge admission when people visit.
4. I was homeschooled for all of middle school and skipped 9th grade.
5. I want to go to Europe so bad it hurts.
6. When I was younger, I raised and breed Bearded Dragons. Super cute little guys - check them out. They make great pets for kids.

Show me some Treasure Tesoro!

I am a Craftopolis Addict! The first thing I look at is always the Treasury Clock. I check that thing maybe 3 times a day.

I have been lucky enough to snag a couple of Treasuries over at Treasury West but today, I snagged a Treasury at the actual Treasury Main. I was sooooo excited! I was working at the time that I was waiting for it to open so when it did open, I was so hurried I didn't really think about titling. I picked the first thing that came to mind - Whimsical.

I'm so glad that I "didn't think at the time" to get Whimsical because I had so much fun putting it together. I started an Etsy forum thread asking for whimsical items. After browsing many shops (so fun!), here is the finished product:

Don't you love it? I just loooove the collection of items I found. Go check it out for yourself here.

Have you recently created a Treasury or in one? I wanna see. Post it below.
